This can be done with ImageMagick (convert a.pdf a.tif) or Aladdin Ghostscript.

Here are examples for converting in both directions using Ghostscript:
(use Aladdin Ghostscript version 5.02 or newer with PDF)
pdf2tiff$ gs -q -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=tiffg4 -sOutputFile=a.tif a.pdf -c quit
tiff2pdf$ tiff2ps -2 a.tif | gs -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=a.pdf - -c quit
